The generation Y students sitting in the management classrooms of today do not find the traditional lecture method engaging enough. On the other hand, given the significant informational content inherent in most management subjects, it is not easy to do away with the lecture method. The flipped classroom pedagogy has been suggested by many high school and college teachers, primarily in USA, to be a solution to this problem. In the present study, flipped classroom has been explored in an Indian setting using teacher interviews. The interview results indicate that the educators are definitely concerned about student engagement. In fact, they have resorted to a variety of pedagogical ideas/ initiatives to improve on same. But they do not still perceive flipped classroom as a panacea for all engagement ills. Two major challenges were identified: students not perusing the pre-class materials, and the in-class exercises not being engaging enough. Two frameworks adapted from literature have been proposed as a solution to the above challenges.

Abstract


The generation Y students sitting in the management classrooms of today do not find the traditional lecture method engaging enough. On the other hand, given the significant informational content inherent in most management subjects, it is not easy to do away with the lecture method. The flipped classroom pedagogy has been suggested by many high school and college teachers, primarily in USA, to be a solution to this problem. In the present study, flipped classroom has been explored in an Indian setting using teacher interviews. The interview results indicate that the educators are definitely concerned about student engagement. In fact, they have resorted to a variety of pedagogical ideas/ initiatives to improve on same. But they do not still perceive flipped classroom as a panacea for all engagement ills. Two major challenges were identified: students not perusing the pre-class materials, and the in-class exercises not being engaging enough. Two frameworks adapted from literature have been proposed as a solution to the above challenges.
